RIP Sandy Hook Elementary School by assassins-fate RIP Sandy Hook Elementary School by assassins-fate
I don't usually draw pictures for something tragic but the shooting on Connecticut is very tragic. :( There are innocent children who died during the shooting, even the adults who died to protect them. This school shooting is the 2nd deadliest school shooting in the history. I was thinking of drawing this angel crying over on the grave of the victims of the shooting.

Even though the anatomy and the sky needs more work in my opinion but at least it worth it for the shooting.

R.I.P. Sandy Hook Elementary School

This is really lovely. This really was a horrible tragedy. I did a tribute to them as well in my honors studio class

Nicely done :nod:

Was it Adam Lanza's autism, his borderline personality disorder, his gun-loving mother, his parents divorce, his failure to get a girlfriend or his addiction to violent games that led him to kill?

We'll never know

I'm sure if the parents, friends, and family of the victims could see this and any other tribute made by people in honor of those lost, they'd feel truly loved knowing people care this greatly :nod:


Through tragedy, kindness truly shines by people helping in one manner or another through such tragic times :nod:

Well my mom and I found this where people are making and sending in paper snowflakes to donate to a new school the children will be going to so they could have a winter wonderland :nod:

I've made a journal in hopes that maybe news could be spread in order for that school to get the best snowflakes members of DA can offer :nod:

Making snowflakes for these kids in my mind is probably the simplest and kindest thing to do, especially with money tight and people learning of the tragedy all over the world, so are probably feeling helpless on what to do for them :nod:

This is so heartbreakingly beautiful... I believe the angels cried that day, too. I don't know what your religious beliefs are, but I personally believe that God's up there serving the justice to end all to that miserable excuse for a human being who murdered all those beautiful, innocent children and those brave adults. (Quite honestly, I wish the guy hadn't committed suicide so he would have to deal with the hell he would be put through down here) This picture shows exactly how I believe things were that day. I think the angels wept, and God held those children in His arms and just gave them His comfort in their last moments on earth.
(Thanks for making me tear up about it again...) Really though, this is beautiful. I love it.

I believe all children go to heaven, honestly. I just loved the concept of the drawing, it totally reflected how I feel about the whole thing. (Other than the burning hatred I have towards that man...)
God bless, indeed. <3

Wow, some of the comments are pretty harsh towards the guy who committed this crime... I don't really mind that though, people have the right to be upset.

The problem I have with this picture is drawing a picture in memory of the kids doesn't really do much. It may have people comment about the incident, but it doesn't really help. In my opinion, the people who care the most are those who try to prevent another shooting from happening in the future, not post a picture that is quite generic on the internet, there are plenty of those. Many of the people who see this comment will disagree, but if you really think about it, would people coming up with an ingenious way to amend the law go down in history? Or would it be your picture that appears in history?

I'm as sad as anyone, so I hope you don't take it the wrong way. I'm just trying to make a point.

I drew this picture to put out the sadness to remember the victims of the shooting. It would make sense if there's god or an angel that feels bad about them. That's the whole point of this artwork. Just to tell you, there is bunch of other artworks for the victims of the shooting that have this similar theme that I have. If it doesn't help out to you, fine by me. I drew this to feel sad about these victims.

If you're that sad about it, then change it. I'm in another country so I can't really do too much, but I'm trying to encourage Americans to still feel sad, but to drive their sadness to do something great, like preventing another tragedy, which you do not seem to pick up on.

I still think it's generic, especially after hearing what you've said. So, in conclusion, "you better recognize!"

It's too late. My artwork is finished. My artwork may not be professional but at least it's worth it for the victims. I'm not a very good artist. I still need more work on my drawing skills. This picture does seem to show sadness like the angel who's crying in my artwork. If it wasn't, then she shouldn't look sad about it.

If you don't appreciate what I draw, I don't care. I draw what I like in my own way.

This isn't for the victims, this is because you want attention. I'm not criticizing your art skills, I'm criticizing you making this at all, regardless of your talent. If you really cared, you would have spent this time doing something for them, either writing a letter of sympathy that only they would see, or changing laws to forbid people like the boy with mental problems to get their hands on dangerous firearms.

This picture shows no care for the students killed at Sandy Hook, I'm sorry to inform you

What makes you say that I want any attention? I don't really care about it. I don't care about popularity. And wow, you just jump into a conclusion that I want popularity.

I just feel sad about the victims. That's all. And saying that my artwork shows no care, well done. To tell you something, if you don't like the artwork that I made, leave it alone. Simple as that.

That bastard should have been torn to shreds by wild dogs, have his balls shoved in a crocodile's mouth, and his dick shoved in a meat grinder... But instead, he took the coward's way out. I take a great deal of pity upon him, because only an insane bastard would do that... And instead of watching the kids' ecstatic faces when they were going to open their Christmas presents, the parents will see their children wrapped in the purest of silk sheets and buried in the grave. To all Sandy Hook victims who read this, Many like myself are here for you... Talk to me, for I am ready to console those who have endured even the greatest of tragedies! You're not alone!

Totally! I agree with you, one hundred and ten motherfucking percent. But why are people even allowed to walk around with assault weapons anyway? Do you know what the Founding Fathers meant when they said that people had the right to bear arms? You WERE the military back then, and you didn't know if you were gonna be attacked, so logically, you had to be ready to fight at a moment's notice, hence the term "Minutemen". They did NOT mean a fucking Vulcan Gatling Gun in the hands of a psychopathic rapist or something like that. We don't need guns, only the Military and Law enforcement.

No the correct way for this guy to die is that he should be impaled,cut off his balls and his d*ck and put them in a grinder and feed them to whatever shit thats gonna eat it cut off his arms,beat him,put a rope around his neck,set him on fire and watch as he burns then afterwards throw his ashes into a garbage bag because that is what he is,disgusting garbage of the earth,US is fucked up even as a citizen myself it is totally messed up homicidal maniacs have way too much freedom,it should be time that there is a freaking change and not to get political but obama should start doing more than talking.

I quote what he said: ''In honour of those lives cut tragically short in Newtown, Connecticut by a madman a few days ago. I will officially rename the fourth planet of the Angel system in United Systems space to "Sandy Hook," all its major cities will also be renamed after those lost. As the name "Shattered Citadel" itself is a reference to the World Trade Center. I will continue that tradition. Rest in peace little angels.'' Its because we's writing an Alternate History novel at the moment.
